It’s according to a new letter sent be the US’ GSA administrator Emily Murphy, obtained by CNN. Analysts have called it “as near as we’ve had to a concession” from President Trump’s team – who have so far refused to acknowledge Mr Biden’s election win.

The move is seen to be a big step by the team, since it means funding will be allocated to Mr Biden by Trump appointees.

Mr Trump himself tweeted immediately after the news. He wrote: “Our case STRONGLY continues, we will keep up the good fight, and I believe we will prevail!

“Nevertheless, in the best interest of our country, I am recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same.

“I want to thank Emily Murphy at GSA for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our country.

“She has been harassed, threatened, and abused – and I do not want to see this happen to her, her family, or employees of GSA.”
